2001 Ares Ashura

Popular Japanese flat bike from early 2000s.

This bike was found on ebay (frame only) in horrible visible condition. A trip to the powder coater took care of that. I had lived in Japan and rode an Ashura very similar to this one back in 2001. I wanted to rebuild that bike so I started to assemble parts. The frame, bars and stem are the same as what I rode, everything else is slightly different. Could not find an Ashura sticker pack, so a DITA pack had to suffice. Definitely not an accurate rebuild, but close enough for me.

Very nice. I have the 1999 Ashura with Ares flatland fork. The stickers are hard to find (reflector design), I think you bought the last Dita sticker pack cos when I went to look there weren't any left. LOL. Nice bars!
